Chelsea target, Wesley Fofana, has excused himself from his Leicester‘s weekend game vs Southampton.

The defender, who is being courted by Chelsea, personally asked his manager, Brendan Rodgers, not to play during the weekend.

Fofana has been left irritated after Leicester turned down two huge bids from Chelsea in the region of £70million.

Leicester are currently holding out for a fee in excess of £80million which would see the Frenchman become the most expensive defender in history.

Person terms have already been agreed between Fofana and Chelsea many days ago in the region of £200,000.

Sources say a new bid from Chelsea is imminent which could be very close to Leicester’s valuation of the defender and enough to see the deal sealed.

Chelsea has been on the lookout for another defender and Fofana is their No. 1 target.

More details to follow as news unfolds.
